Bengaluru, Sept 30: Karnataka has witnessed 163 cases of communal violence or riots since 2019 with nearly a hundred cases reporting this year alone, according to official data.  

The data tabled by the state government in the legislature earlier this month, also revealed that almost three-fifths of those communal incidents took place in in Shivamogga, the home district of home minister Araga Jnanendra and BJP bigwigs B S Yediyurappa and K S Eshwarappa. 

In 2019, the state had witnessed only 16 cases. However, in 2022 (till September) the state saw 96 incidents of communal violence or riots in what many see as a symptom of polarisation taking place ahead of the 2023 Assembly elections. In 2020 and 2021 the state had witnessed 19 and 32 cases respectively

Interestingly, of the 96 cases this year, 42 belong to Shivamogga. 

Since 2019, which happens to be the year when the BJP came to power, 18 districts have reported communal violence. Shivamogga tops the list with 57 cases followed by Bagalkot (22), Davangere (18), Dakshina Kannada (10), Kodagu (10). 

There were communal killings in Dakshina Kannada, Gadag (Nargund) and Shivamogga, Home Minister Araga Jnanendra said in his written reply to the Legislative Council. Also, more than 300 police personnel sustained injuries during riots.

New Delhi, Sept 26: Ten tourists including three students of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Varanasi were killed while ten more were injured after the vehicle they were travelling fell into a gorge in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu. 

The tourists, largely belonging to Uttar Pradesh, were travelling when a Tempo Traveller (UP 14 HT 8272) skidded off the road and rolled down the hill near Jalori Pass in Banjar subdivision on Sunday night.

Most of the injured were admitted to the Regional Hospital in Kullu town, some 200 km from the state capital. The cause of the accident is yet to be ascertained, an official said. The administration had a tough time extricating the victims of both the accidents from the badly mangled vehicle. People in the area began rescue operations even before authorities reached the spot.

BJP MLA from Banjar Surender Shourie had streamed a video on Facebook on Monday, informing people about the accident. The injured were first taken to Banjar hospital from where they have been referred to a Kullu hospital after being given first aid, he added.

PM MODI CONDOLES LOSS OF LIVES

Reacting to the tragedy, PM Modi expressed his “deepest condolences” to the families of those who died in the accident. In a tweet, PM Modi said help is being provided to those injured.

“The accident of a tourist vehicle falling into a ditch in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh is very sad. I express my deepest condolences to the families of those who have lost their loved ones in this accident. Along with this, all possible help is being provided to the injured. I wish him a speedy recovery,” PM Modi tweeted.

New Delhi, Sept 27: In a huge setback for Uddhav Thackeray in his fight against Eknath Shinde, the Supreme Court today refused to stop the Election Commission from deciding who forms the real Shiv Sena.

Uddhav Thackeray's faction had requested the Supreme Court to stop the Election Commission from deciding on the claim of Eknath Shinde-led group over the "real" Shiv Sena and its symbol.

The Supreme Court's Constitution bench heard the petition.

Uddhav Thackeray's government in Maharashtra crashed in June after a coup led by his former aide Eknath Shinde, who went on to form a new government along with the BJP.

Mr Shinde was sworn in as Chief Minister on June 30, with the BJP's Devendra Fadnavis as his deputy.

On August 23, the Supreme Court referred to a five-judge bench petitions filed by the Uddhav Thackeray and Shinde-led factions raising several constitutional questions related to defection, merger and disqualification.

The court said the petitions raise important constitutional issues on the disqualification of defecting MLAs, the power of the Speaker and the Governor and judicial review.

The Thackeray faction had told the court that MLAs loyal to Eknath Shinde could avoid disqualification under the 10th Schedule of the Constitution only by merging with another political party.

Team Shinde had argued that the anti-defection law cannot be a weapon for a leader who has lost the confidence of his own party.
